Tracking progress: The Green House Truck

Selling gourmet food from customized trucks is one of the hottest trends in the restaurant business. Mobile restaurants crisscross American cities like Austin, Portland, Los Angeles and New York. The City of Dallas is looking into joining the parade, but for now only one such travelling gourmet diner is allowed to operate in the Park Cities area of Dallas.

The Green House Truck will be a special feature of Engineering & Humanity Week 2011.  Owner Michael Seigel encourages people to think of his converted Ford truck as “an outdoor coffee shop/ WiFi hot spot, where you can grab your food and enjoy you meal outside.”

Executive Chef Ben Hutchison promises E&H Week attendees "made-from-scratch food featuring fresh ingredients prepared daily.  The goal is to serve a quality product that is healthy, affordable, and fast.  We feature lean proteins and seasonal fruits and vegetables to ensure a delicious, balanced meal."

Hutchison is a familiar face to the kitchen for many Dallasites, having been in the kitchen for such restaurants as Food Company, Star Canyon, and Routh Street.

The Green House truck also practices its brand name. Green House uses 100% biodegradable and compostable containers, plates, and utensils. The truck's kitchen power source is a combination of propane and rechargeable batteries.

Most days, the only way to keep track of The Green House location and its breakfast and lunch menu is via Twitter and Facebook. But for Engineering & Humanity Week 2011, the truck will be parked in plain sight, it's cuisine for all to enjoy without environmental remorse.

It is really an innovative idea to sever the quality food to the food lover from the truck, that can be moved from one place to another.

Well, the most interesting thing to me is the idea that it can be WiFi hotspot, super cool, indeed!
